In April 2013, arvato UK acquired the Cheshire HR Service (CHRS) as part of a four-year contract with East Cheshire NHS Trust to provide professional and transactional HR services to the Trust, its current customers, and other NHS and public sector organisations.
Under the framework agreement, arvato has delivered immediate cost savings and plans to attract new clients that realise longer term financial benefits.
Established in 2006, CHRS was a pioneer in HR shared services. Staffed by HR consultants, administrative professionals, and learning and development specialists, it is highly experienced in delivering people management services.
Recently, CHRS successfully launched a range of workforce management and information systems that help organisations to manage their workforce effectively and efficiently, reduce time spent on HR administrative tasks and increase capacity for strategic activities.
